Reading The Bible - how where when?

Girls, I need your help with my Preach for the Word and Worship event
7.30pm Saturday 19th March.

I'll be talking about us flourishing and growing as Christian women - and part of that is us personally reading the Bible. SO...what are your tips, routines, hints? How do YOU read the Bible? Where? When?
I'd love to hear your stories - things that help you and things that hinder.
Oh yes, and remember there's no condemnation!!!
This is an area of following Jesus where many of us can feel guilt because it can be really hard to regularly spend time reading the Bible and praying. It's hard!
But one of the things I want to say on Saturday is that there is GRACE , not guilt; and we can help one another in this!
So please leave a comment or email me and I'll include your stories - and help eachother

Remember to tell your friends and other women you meet - flyers are available at Kerith reception and you can read more information online on our page of the Kerith website. Let's do all we can to make sure that all women know about this evening.
I really believe it's going to be a great event for ALL WOMEN - all ages, all stages of our Christian lives - hope to see YOU there too! x

Hey!I find that reading my bible in the bath, or if I'm having a shower I'll read my bible for 5/10 minutes after the shower. xx

I use YouVersion on my iTouch & read the one day daily devotional in bed as soon as I wake up. This means I don't forget to do it and it sets me up for the day. I generally read the whole chapter instead of just taking the one verse it highlights.

I sometimes read the verse that's been highlighted that day just before I go to sleep at night. In the past it's helped have a great & peaceful night's sleep.

From time to time I also enjoy picking up my 'proper' & favourite Bible (the one with real pages!) and reading about characters, recently Abraham, Noah & Joshua. I'm just about to start Ruth.

It's not always easy to decide to read my Bible but it's always more rewarding than the DVD or TV programme option :0)

I downloaded a daily bible andriod app. I love it! Everyday I get new scriptures some long some only a couple of verses. I find I look at it serveral times throughout the day, which I really benefit from. I find it does actually make me think about what God may be saying to me.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

Hello again :)

Long time no see!!!!
What to talk about after so long an absence?!?!

I've had so many wonderful experiences and opportunities recently, and so I can't wait to tell you the stories of my travel to support women's conferences in Albania and Macedonia. 

God was so good to us, and it was such a privilege to travel there with our wonderful Kerith women, to pray for the Balkan women and to stand alongside them as their sisters, encouraging them in their faith. 
We had adventures; new experiences; thunder storms and sunshine; lost luggage and unexpected gifts. We saw salvations and re-commitments; we prayed for women of all ages and backgrounds; some of us were more successful at mastering the language than others, but we had a go! We sang worship songs in a mixture of "have-a-go-Albanian" and the few English lines we could remember (and just kept repeating them!) 
We gave away what we had in terms of our faith and trust in God. We know that we received so much from being th…
